Why This Must Be Read: Hi there - this month I'm reccing Historical AUs and we're starting way back in medieval times and working our way forward to the 20th century. In this lovely fic Rodney's a monk and John's a disgraced knight exiled to his monastery. I like how canon's translated into this totally different context and how they're still very much themselves. The details are great as well - in trying to figure out roughly when the story might be set I looked up the Archimedes text mentioned toward the end, and it sounds absolutely like the sort of revolutionary thinking that would have excited Rodney.
